stayed one night here when we went to a concert at St Mary's church , Indian River Festival. Church concert experience is magical. home Place is charming. staff are gracious and welcoming and helpful. room was spacious with huge jacuzzi tub. house is very Victorian and lots of historical details present.Dinner was excellent. Fish cooked just right, not overdone. breakfast plentiful and wonderful pancakes. Definite find in this part of PEI!

The Home Place in Kensington is an older inn with lots of dark original wood, old style wallpaper, lace, and charm. Our room was pretty with burgundy floral wallpaper and a big comfortable bed. The ensuite was tiny but was very clean and had everything we needed. Location was great and we used The Home Place as our home base for visiting Cavendish, Summerside, Charlottetown.....all an easy drive.
Weather wasn't the greatest (rain) but we enjoyed a very cosy dinner in the Home Place restaurant right below our room! Glenda Burt has an upscale restaurant that was a busy spot even on a Monday night. Our meals were fantastic! We then retired to the lounge area for special coffees. Breakfasts also were lovely and filling. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We would come back again for sure!

This B&B is a great place to stay if you are touring PEI. The room was clean, the staff friendly, the food great! I would recommend they upgrade their TV's however you are not usually there to watch TV, lol.

Our whole experience was from the welcome, to our room, to our meals wonderful. We plan on our next visit to the Island make the Home Place Inn our first stop. We did feel like we had been welcomed to a warm, friendly home.

Our room (#1) was comfortable, clean, and there were robes for us to wear, we could not have asked for more. The staff made sure that our bikes were put away in the shed, showed us to our room, and asked us to let them know if we needed anything else. Dinner was outstanding, it was truly gourmet. This is the first place I have ever eaten where the chef actually catered to my unusual tastes. When I asked our server, who was also one of the highlights of our dinner, about the ingredients of one of the dishes, and asked if it could be made without cream, the chef, Allison, came out and suggested things she could add in place of the cream in the sauce. I agreed to her suggestion of coconut milk and was unbelievably pleased with the result. I mopped up the sauce and left a clean plate! The server was one of the highlights because she was there when we needed her and not there when we didn't. She didn't hover nor did we have long waits for her. One thing she did which I particularly appreciated, was that she did not remove my empty plate while my partner was still eating. At breakfast the next morning Glenda was the chef and she too had suggestions about dishes and or modifications of dishes which would be satisfactory.

Overall, the stay at the Home Place Inn was the highlight of our bicycle trip across PEI. I can highly recommend the Home Place Inn as a place to stay and as a restaurant at which to dine. It is very convenient to the Confederation Trail and, when you are on a bike, it is nice not to have to bike to dinner and back.

Exceeded our expectations. Real homemade gourmet food as good as the best metropolitan restaurants. Quiet and friendly. The honeymoon suite is a real treat, with a supremely comfortable bed and a jacuzzi.
